Virtual Instructor Led Training

These are extremely challenging times – especially for the aviation industry! But that does not mean you have to stop learning! This is as good a time as any to keep upgrading your skills!

Yes, we do have a challenge as many of the courses that we offer are face to face classroom sessions. But challenges must be overcome, and the GCAS Team are working to ensure that you continue to able to have access to relevant aviation & airport training sessions.

Virtual Instructor Led Training or VILT is the next best thing to face to face learning, where you can interact with your instructor and fellow classroom, albeit remotely! Here’s what Harvard Business Publishing had to say about VILT;

Virtual Learning Works, But Not Because It’s Virtual

“First, virtual learning – done well – can be a more effective and more impactful option for learning than classroom experiences. Second, it’s not the fact that it’s virtual, or even that it uses technology, that makes it better.

I’m not going to get into a comparison of the activity-level instructional design considerations and constraints for either approach, because they’re almost irrelevant to this discussion. The reason virtual is superior is about how people really learn, and the opportunity that shorter, focused bursts of learning spread over time provides for changes in the way people think and act.”

Larry Clark -
